You know I was skeptical at first because i listened to the final episode and didint recognize the new names and kinda just shrugged it off. Recently I stared listening to the rookie series and when I finished that I decided to give the ancestor remake a go after I listened to the infected books (I did read the hardbacks though). It was different but after listening to the contagious Q&A and scott said that all the stories were in the same universe I decided that I didnt want to miss out on part of the story line, although I do wonder if nocturnal is part of the universe.
The new names caught me up for one or two chapters but I got used to it. The sabotage of the first lab surprised me and I was tricked up. The way P.J. knew Sarah was a cool plat twist as well.
Well thats as far as I am so far and already I think I will try and find a New copy of ancestor now and I will probably add to this later, peace.
